Rated 3 out of 5 by Oh, if only it fit! Oh the hanger, this dress is utterly gorgeous. The colors are rich, vibrant, incredible. But ultimately, I had to return it, because the fit was totally off. (For reference, I am about 5'4", 117, and I always wear a 0 or an XS.) First, the top is HUGE. If you zoom in on the model photos, you can kinda see some billowing in the back and front. However, I suspect the dress was pinned, because I had significantly more extra fabric up top. Second, there is no snap or tie closure on the top, so it just kinda hung open, all the way down to just below my sternum. That alone wouldn't have been a deal-breaker, since it's easy enough to add a snap closure; but in combination with the poor fit up top, it just wasn't going to work. (The waist fits properly, FYI) As a final note, this is a SHORT dress. At 5'4", it was ok on me, but taller women should proceed with caution. June 23, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful!!! Made of a beautiful silk, lovely design. The top is a little difficult though. It needs to be held together by two-way tape or wear something underneath. This may not be a problem for someone with a small chest. I suggest trying it on to make sure you're comfortable with the top. Otherwise, it is short which isn't a problem for me but could be if you are tall. October 7, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful dress! I agree with the previous comments, with a few differences. I'm 5'6 and I don't think this is too short. Maybe if you were really tall you'd have a problem, but I have really long legs, and I don't have a problem with this dress. I do agree that the top lacks structure and a closure device, however, I'm getting around this with some simple fashion tape. It's really sexy and does open to below my sternum. I'm small busted so I can get away with this look, and go bra-less. It's great! September 14, 2012
